MRes Criminology

Course Description


This course is ideally placed to enhance the skills of those people with experience of working within the Criminal Justice sector. The emphasis of the course is not only on enhancing academic skills such as research but also on enhancing work based skills including Leadership and Management with one of the compulsory modules dedicated to the theory and practice of leadership which is unique in a Criminology Masters course.

The programme also includes a work based learning module as the University has excellent links with stakeholders within the Criminal Justice sector including NGO and charitable organisations such as Victim Services and local Drug and Alcohol teams. The University also has its own “Centre for Volunteering and Community Liaison” which fosters excellent partnerships with communities across the region.


This course offers a placement scheme which will give students excellent networking opportunities for future careers in a variety of related industries

There are opportunities for work-based learning on this programme organised by UCLan’s Centre for Volunteering and Community Leadership.

Students will develop key employability skills applicable across the Criminal Justice and related sectors – with an opportunity to progress to a Level 6 qualification in Leadership and Management.

The programme was praised as a “very worthwhile project” by a representative of the Chamber of Commerce, highly praised for its “evidence based approach” and for filling a “gap in criminology postgraduate provision” by the external advisors at the validation event.
